Decay

Like many of you, the theme"decay" immediately brought to mind decaying leaves, flowers and plant matter. As I have been playing with tea bag paper for an upcoming exhibition, I have been making little flowers and they looked like dead, withered white roses and then I thought of  that formidable character , Miss Havisham from  Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations". Here is my tag for this week - Miss Havisham amongst her decay and wearing her bridal veil complete with decaying white roses.
